 My Comments:
This book I about Jennifer's life and experience that lead her to adopting a child from Guatemala altho0ugh she is already a mother of three.
What I liked about this book is that it's not procedure orientated. It's more "memoir" like. Readers are given a picture of what Jennifer's and her family life was liked before the adoption and what prompted her to think about adoption. It's really good to know that she did not preach to the readers why they must adopt kids. She just placed the facts upfront and let the readers decide for themselves. As she had mentioned several times, adoption is not for everyone.
 What I don't like about this book is that it's lack of family photos. As people said a million times before, a photo is worth a million words. It would have been good if they published some photos too.
Overall I rate this book 4 stars out of 5 star. It's not that informative on adoption procedure but it certainly helps readers to understand better what they have to expect when they adopt a child. It's not enough that the future parents wants to adopt just for the sake of charity, but they really have to have enough love for the child. To treat the child as if it's their biological child.
I would like to thank the publisher, Thomas Nelson for sending me this book to review. All opinion stated herein are solely mine.
